[A]Daddy drives an eighteen wheeler, and they sure miss him when he's [E]gone. Climb 1: Ah, but he [A]calls 'em ev'ry [G#m]night and [F#7]tells 'em that he loves[B] them.

It rings but it's not his [Dm]voice. Seems the high-[Bb]way patrol has found a jack-knifed rig in a snowbank in Illinois.[F] But the driver was missin', and the search had been abandoned 'cause the weather had ev'rything [Dm]stalled. And they had [Bb]checked all the houses and the local motels; when they had some more news they'd call.[F] Climb 2: And she told [Bb]them when they [Am]found him to tell [Gm7]him that she loved[C] him.

[Dm] Bridge: [Dm]Mama and the children will be [Am7]waiting up all night long, thinkin' [Bb]nothin' but the worst is comin' with the ring-[F]in' of the telephone. Oh, but the [Dm]Man upstairs was list'nin' when Mama [Bb]asked him to bring Daddy home. And when the [Gm]call came in, it was Daddy on the other end, [C]askin' her if she had been a-singin' the song, singin': REPEAT Chorus 2, but instead of Dm at the end of "Roll On Eighteen Wheeler, Roll On", make it an F.
